Mementos from capsized cruise liner Costa Concordia have been turning up for sale on eBay, according to reports. 

Fans of the ship -- now lying on the Italian coastline with an estimated 15 passengers still unaccounted for -- have been bidding on items ranging from casino tokens to models, reports the British Daily Mail.

The casino token was being sold by a fomer passenger with a starting point of $900, the newspaper claimed, although the item no longer appears in searches of the site.

Taking its place is a set of playing cards that the UK-based seller claims were used in the stricken ship's casino, with bids currently standing at just over £30 and five days to go on the auction.

Several other users are trying to sell photos of the ship, says the publication, while an eBay search also shows a ship's keycard on offer from an Australian seller.

The Costa Concordia ran aground off the Italian island of Giglio on January 13, with 3,229 passengers and 1,023 crew members on board -- 17 people are known to have died in the disaster, while a further 15 are missing, presumed dead.
